The Linda Lindas sell out Santa Ana before upcoming Green Day tour

In a dazzling display of talent and youthful exuberance, The Linda Lindas, with the infectious energy of Illuminati Hotties opening for them, took the stage at The Observatory in Santa Ana, leaving the audience in awe.

The night was not just a concert; it was a celebration of the boundless potential of young musicians who are rewriting the rules of the industry.

Illuminati Hotties kicked off the evening with a punch, delivering a setlist that seamlessly blended their indie-rock sound with an irresistible pop sensibility. From the anthemic “Joni” to the vibes of “Kickflip,” the crowd was taken on a musical journey that showcased the band’s versatility. One of the highlights of their set was undoubtedly “Mmmoooaaayaya,” where lead singer Sarah Tudzin’s charismatic stage presence had the audience dancing and singing along. Illuminati Hotties proved why they are a force to be reckoned with, setting the perfect tone for the evening.

As the anticipation reached its peak, The Linda Lindas took the stage to a roar of applause that seemed almost surreal considering the young age of the band members. Speaking of age, I was completely blown away by how young so many in the crowd were! There was serious number of very young kids. We are talking first and second grade! I cannot tell you how much I love this! I love parents bringing their kids to shows at an early age and exposing them to musical talent, especially in the indie and pop punk genres! But age was just a number for these teenage sensations on stage as they effortlessly commanded the venue with a confidence and skill that would put many seasoned musicians to shame.

The setlist was a rollercoaster of punk-infused anthems and catchy tunes, showcasing The Linda Lindas’ ability to navigate different musical styles. Opening with the irresistibly catchy “Fine,” the band immediately had the crowd hooked. Songs like “Talking to Myself” and “Too Many Things” showcased the depth of their songwriting, tackling themes beyond their years with a refreshing honesty.

What’s truly incredible is the trajectory The Linda Lindas are on. Selling out venues like The Observatory is no small feat, and the fact that these teenagers are about to embark on a stadium tour as the opening act for Green Day speaks volumes about their meteoric rise. It’s a testament to the power of raw talent, genuine passion, and a fresh perspective that The Linda Lindas brings to the table.

The setlist was a journey through their discography, with highlights including the defiant “Racist Sexist Boy” and the anthemic “Growing Up.” Closing the night with a powerful rendition of “Rebel Girl,”

The Linda Lindas left the stage to thunderous applause, solidifying their status as a band destined for greatness.

In a world that sometimes seems to move at breakneck speed, The Linda Lindas offer a refreshing reminder that age is no barrier to artistic excellence. The Observatory in Santa Ana bore witness to a night that will undoubtedly be remembered as a turning point in the career of this phenomenal band, leaving everyone in attendance eagerly awaiting their tour with Green Day!
